Hi, welcome to Flu Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the New Zealand page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Ose (Talk) 01:39, April 27, 2009

Hey Robin, nice to see you show up. Hopefully we can work to get out some valid, calm information in a time of fear. :)----Jimbo Wales 01:59, 27 April 2009 (UTC)


Hi, I've elevated you to admin here. I have no idea if this wiki is going to fizzle out or be very important in coming days, but if it gets super busy, it'll be great to have some good experienced people around!----Jimbo Wales 03:50, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Fine. Rollback is faster than Undo. And I might help with sidebar etc. I must write a lens if nobody else has. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 03:55, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Google maps extension

(Discussion here has been moved to Forum:Google maps extension; no more here, please!)

Mission mode

Thanks for the warm welcome! :) It's nice to see the speed with which this idea is catching on! Actually a wiki like this has to operate in a mission mode. It should not try to be complete or documentary. I'll look through your ideas as I browse through this in detail and put more stuff up, have some more mission based suggestions. Semantic wiki would help as would semantic google maps- but lets get more involvement first? --Anupam 16:11, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Good idea

Good idea on the RfA thing. I plan to advertise around a bit for admins tomorrow.----Jimbo Wales 06:50, 1 May 2009 (UTC)


I'm not quite sure I understand what i'm supposed to help you with. How about using the IRC channel I set up for discussions? Osetc 15:59, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Influenza educational materials

I'll have a look and see what I can do... The answer is not a hug amount, I've hd a look at the template you've proposed, and I think I know what it does, and I think it will work, but am not sure. Don't want to mess with it. I have, however, added a link to the resources from the main sidebar menu. I'll think about how to split up the 'English' resources, but I think it need to be done in the same way that the main page splits them. Will put some more thought into it and talk to Kathleen.

With respect to my blog, Any distribution would be welcome - it has a small readership. It would seem that I'm generally between a day and three months ahead of press reports... So today I heard what I wrote repeated practically word for word on the BBC. Can't work out whether its prescience on my part or something else! Richard Rothwell talk 20:47, 3 May 2009 (UTC)


I'm SBR09, founder of [1], Weird World Wiki. It is a free fanon where you make fun of things and even create anything. There are some rules like no cussing, but tell me on this wiki if you want to join.
